New In Person All Gender Interpersonal Process Group forming now!

This group provides a forum for members to explore how they contribute and react to interpersonal pressures and opportunities.  Participants can learn about the customary social roles they assume, and make changes to relationship patterns that feel problematic and unfulfilling.  Periodically, review sessions will be held, through which group members can organize their learning and consider its application to other settings such as work, family, and social circles.

Saturdays, 10 a.m.–Noon
For more information please contact

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Fellowship

This open-ended fellowship will enable licensed and unlicensed clinicians to learn intensive psychoanalytic psychotherapy under the supervision of an experienced contemporary psychoanalytic clinician. Fellows will see three clients 3-5 times a week until each client is  able to shift their unconscious conflicts and long-standing relationship patterns with self and others. Applications for this fellowship will be accepted on a rolling basis.
